Some notes on “The WordPress bookmarklet was deprecated. Please delete it from your web browser.” because the `/wp-admin/press-this.php` based URLs look very similar.

OS X El Capitan: Open an app from an unidentified developer

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/17

The first trick works for WinBox 3.7 on Mac [download], the second doesn’t.

First trick:

To override your security settings and open the app anyway:

  1. In the Finder, locate the app you want to open.

    Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.

  2. Press the Control key and click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.

  3. Click Open.

    The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it just as you can any registered app.

Second trick:

Note:   Another way to grant an exception for a blocked app is to click the “Open Anyway” button on the Security pane of System Preferences. This button is available for about an hour after you try to open the app.

To open this pane, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Security & Privacy.

github – Open Atom editor from command line – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/17

I have the Atom editor and was wondering how you can open a file or folder from the terminal in Atom. I am using a Mac. I am looking for a way to do this: atom . (opens folder) atom file.js (

The answer to it isn’t any good any more (since then, Atom has evolved), but this comment works splendid:

I solved the issue by choosing “Install Shell Commands” under the “Atom” menu.

It will add a script in /usr/local/bin/atom that starts Atom with the parameters you entered.

Thanks [WayBackrxgx!
